Leonard Frank Arons ran for and was successful in his bid to become a delegate for Ronald Reagan’s 1980 presidential campaign. Previous to this, he spoke at a Board of Regents hearing at Illinois State University on student fee increases representing the College Republicans and Task Force on Student Fees. He ran for public office twice in 1996 and 2000 as a Republican for a Missouri State Senate seat. In both races he ran against incumbent democrat John E. Scott who held the position since 1976. Running on a platform of a unique combination of experience as a former public school teacher and a private attorney, Arons vowed to eliminate sales tax on food, reform the welfare system, and uphold traditional family values. In both races, Arons took in about 30% of the vote to Scott’s 60%.
